Music hits streets in Marsden
MARSDEN was in full swing at the weekend as it hosted its annual Jazz Festival.
Thousands of music lovers descended on the village as many of its venues played host to some of the best jazz and blues artists in the business.
Over 60 events, featuring both big names and up-and-coming artists, were staged over the weekend, most of which were free.
The music extravaganza, now in its 17th year, kicked off in style on the Friday night
with a performance by the popular jazz group Temperance Seven in the Mechanics Hall.
Other headline acts over the course of the weekend included world-class jazz singer Claire Martin and one of the hottest properties in British jazz today, Empirical.
